Linda I am SO sorry about the delay in replying to you. I don't get online much at all anymore, and even less on this site since a woman on here launched a hate campaign against me...oh well live and learn I guess. I was refering to the Nabisco famous wafers...the very thin chocolate wafers, they crumb up nicely and the dark chocolate taste adds a nice touch I think. Good luck with them if you make them. Thank you for stopping by :o)

The recipe calls for Nabisco cookies. I was just wondering which Nabisco cookies? Thanks!

it was a recipe from a package of baker semi sweet, I was so glad I tried it, we used to live close to a Lindt chocolate outlet and we miss their truffles so much, I am not saying these are Lindt quality but they are good and so easy.
